Crunchyroll continues to be one of the premier sites for streaming anime and has now announced that it will be releasing seven new anime series in its library.
Throughout 2020, all-new adventure, fantasy, supernatural romance, and historical fiction shows will be joining Crunchyroll’s already considerable anime library of 1,000 titles and 30,000 episodes. You won’t be able to find these compelling new shows anywhere else.
The upcoming series will include Onyx Equinox, The God of High School, Meiji Gekken: Sword & Gun, Tower of God, High Guardian Spice, Noblesse, and FreakAngels in total. While the series of In/Spectre is currently airing on Crunchyroll, it is still considered to fall under this category of series. With streaming services like Netflix and Funimation vying for supremacy, Crunchyroll is making a big push to stay ahead of the competition.
Based on graphic novels by the same name by Warren Ellis and Paul Duffield, this show follows twelve psychics in a post-apocalyptic London attempting to rebuild society.

3. Onyx Equinox
A young Aztec boy is saved from death by the gods and chosen to act as ‘humanity’s champion,’ forced to discard his apathy toward his fellow man and prove humanity’s potential in a fight that spans across fantastical-yet-authentic Mesoamerican cultures. This show created by Sofia Alexander premieres in the summer of 2020.
2. The God of High School
Based on a comic of the same name by Yongje Park and animated by MAPPA, this series is about high schoolers loaning power of gods and fighting their way through an “epic tournament.
